11:30 am
the city wide level and through a two workshops where we did the classic lines on a map and give me every crazy idea that you have had exercise which was i think a lot of fun for everybody and it was in there and you can see that we had a very active group for presenting a lot of really great ideas and really going to think outside of the box and again, thinking about what some of the issues are and how they can be addressed, we grouped these concepts into kind of four key areas and thinking about how do we address the systems or the issues that the system has in the near and long term and how the ininvolvements kind of 3w8d on one another and to build the investments for the future. >> this looks very clean and final but this was in fact all of that nice hand drawing diagram both together and we can see it in one spot and so these are some of the concepts that were out there and so we are moving through the concept and developing the order of magnitude cost and doing and,
11:31 am
we have conducted the feasibility screening on the number of those outside of the box concepts and so, we are hoping to, and we are hoping to bring an internal draft in the next few weeks and move forward to the committees and provide more opportunities for the feedback on the document. >> thank you very much. >> commissioner yee has a question? >> thank you chair tang. >> it is, i just in terms of the long term, projects, and it is really hard for me to look at those pictures and really figure out the detail and i am just wondering has it been, much thought maybe as it has already been thought through, and this and that and one diagram where you have everything. but, i often, i thought about
11:32 am
things like why, do we have one rail line? that is in market street? or where the lines goes through there and why aren't we thinking about having, a separate line that can reduce the bottle neck through there and whether it is on top of each other or side by side and, is there otherer are there any thoughts about whether or not we should at least study, and studied it before? and in putting at least the m, and since we are looking at the m line he ways, and a k, and the k and the m, were whether or not it makes any sense to bring it under from the west portal tunnel itself. >> and to right now we are studying it up to from the saint francis circle to park merced and so should we be looking at whether or not it
11:33 am
makes some sense to extend it all the way, if you are going to go under growing and all the way into the tunnel itself. >> the other one, and i don't know, what the capacity or the need, but, much of our transportation, is gears towards east, and west, and can we, look at at least on the web side, whether or not it makes any sense to do any light rail going from the daily city to golden gate bridge, to cover that area. >> because, that is something that i was wondering and you know, these people that they go to and whether it is the san francisco state, or the city college or especially on the west side and the richmond and so forth and you only have a couple of bus lines that is always packed. and you know, whether or not it makes sense especially with at
11:34 am
least in the district seven we are going to have more housing. and that is going to, and they will have to go somewhere from there, and i don't think that the capacity is there, in terms of public transportation. >> yes, so, in kind of the reverse order. on the west side of the city, there are north and sound concepts that have been included in the study and were mentioned a number of times by the stake hold their we engaged and so those have been included. and so in terms of the founding project and i am a little bit less familiar with what is being studied right now and however i do know that there were discussions about a tunnel that was connecting to the west power tal tunnel through the saint francis circle and further to the south and i will have to get back to you on the specifics and to get that included in there and that is something that all of these projects are still in an early stage where those ideas are welcoming and should be investigated. and then in terms of
11:35 am
specifically surface rail and market, that was actually a question from the mta and cac and the number of sort of technical issues and operational issues and the safety issues and directly operating the modern, light rail, vehicles on the market that i could provide more detail on if you are interested and that the concepts for optimizing our existing tunnel and looking for parallel, or compliment routes. >> thank you, any other questions or comments on this item? >> yes. >> from our committee members, okay. >> all right. >> well, seeing none, we will open it up to public comment on this item. >> the capacity stud y >> yes. >> (inaudible)

11:38 am
does not happen with a role like mine is that we don't take the time to thank the authority staff and i want to say that david and tilly and maria are awesome and there is often not a day that i do not talk to one of these people over here and there are 7:00 a.m. kitchen calls about the issues and we do work together as a team and i think that there will be great things between the mta and the authority in the upcoming years and there is definitely work to do and they are working on improving the allegation process and i know that all of you are work og that and they are committed to making the authority the best organization that can be for san francisco. >> and i wanted to take the opportunity to thank them and they have been a great partner and there is more work to do but it has been a great five years, thanks. >> thank you so much for your service and your refreshing public comment, thank you very much. >> thank you. >> and i am chief deputy and if he comes back and sings the comments to you, and i just wanted to thanks him for for us and he has helped, work with him, and the mta to really
